Bobby Van’s Grill marks the return of the powerful New York City chop shop to the downtown D.C. area but with a new twist. This eclectic New American Steakhouse now boasts a slightly more casual family friendly atmosphere as well as catering to the Washington politician. This 536-seat D.C. destination is fully loaded! There’s four private, intimate and upscale dining rooms with their own bar and bar services. Two 40-foot long bars can be found with friendly bartenders serving strong drinks and even stronger conversations. The main dining room boasts views of both New York Avenue and the plush marble atrium of the adjoining building amidst its beautiful water fountain. This is an ideal place to meet for power lunches, family gatherings and late night dinners in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Had an amazing evening at Bobby Van’s Grill. I took my date as a surprise and she wasn’t the only one amazed. Everything was unbelievable, from the presentation/serving of the food to the all around service and atmosphere. I will defiantly be returning here

The New York Strip which I had was outstanding for its flavor, and the portion was very generous for the "smaller" size steak. The warm bread and pretzel sticks were also very good, as were the hashbrowns. although the broccoli was rather bland. Although the service was a little slow for a "slow" night--Sunday, my one complaint is with the wine list, which, while extensive, has no bottles for less than $50.

Great place to go with someone special or a group. Have been a few times and every time it is a great experience and food is always worth talking about and wanting us to go back again and again.

It was the worst dining experience in my life. The noise level was unbearable, the other guests were out of control and nobody was attentive to our needs or happiness. It was so dreadful we took our main courses to go.

Great place for a business meal. Executive menu was a very good value. Noise level allowed for a private conversation without shouting.

The food was delicious - the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer was enough to be a small meal! Everything was perfection, from the service to the ambiance. This is a gem! However, when making reservations, be sure to note the difference between Bobby Van’s Grill and Bobby Van’s Steakhouse. They are different restaurants at different addresses...
